Abraham was born on April 16, 1684, in Concord, the son of Abraham Wood and Sarah Dakin. He married Hannah Browne "of Sudbury" in Reading on December 30, 1708. She was the daughter of Cornelius Browne and Sarah Lamson, born August 28, 1680 in Reading. Abraham and Hannah lived in Sudbury until after the birth of Samuel, the first of their seven children, then they moved to Concord. In 1729, they returned to Sudbury, where they both lived the rest of their lives.

Abraham and his father leased the "new" mills from the Town of Sudbury in 1700. The mill had been donated to the town by Peter Noyes, to be used to help support the poor. They ran the mill under lease until 1728, when they bought it from the town for 700 pounds. Abraham must have been a miller by trade. That Abraham was also a contractor of some repute, there is no doubt. He built a new meeting house in the west precinct for the Town of Sudbury, with Joseph Dakin as a partner, in 1725. They were paid 400 pounds to erect the building.

According to Sudbury vital records, Abraham died July 11, 1742, and Hannah died November 7, 1746. Abraham has a stone in the Revolutionary War Cemetery in Sudbury.
